Why mechanical design cannot be like VLSI design

Daniel E. Whitney
1996 Research in Engineering Design  
He also acknowledges the many discussions he had with people mentioned in the footnotes who enriched his approach to this topic.  ...  There are standards for a number of commodity items such as fasteners, and ongoing efforts in some industries have led to standards for interchanging business data, but not technical design data.  ...  process description is that if digital logic can be used, system design and device design are decoupled.  ...

Signal propagation in high-speed MCM circuits

C. Truzzi, E. Beyne, E. Ringoot, J. Peeters
Proceedings of ICCD '95 International Conference on Computer Design. VLSI in Computers and Processors  
Timing analyses and circuit simulations were pelfomzed during the design of a MCM consisting of 4 bare 0.7~pm CMOS ASIC's (100 pins, 64 mm2, standard cell technology) transmitting signals at 200 Mbit/s  ...  propagation of the signals, including the combined influence of active devices (drivers and receivers) and coupled, lossy interconnection lines; 2) an accurate overview of the way parameters from diRerent  ...  The simulation tool used for this analysis (Transplus) combines an accurate modelling of the active devices (SPICE level 3 compatible) with an accurate description of the (lossy) transmission lines in  ...

We also find that an ESB nearly doubled the odds of remaining independent for an average target in our data set, from 34% to 61%, halved the odds that a first bidder would be successful, from 34% to 14%  ...  Overall, we estimate that, in the period studied, ESBs reduced the returns of shareholders of hostile bid targets on the order of 8-10%.  ...  If not, Forms 8-K and 10-Q, as well as news stories in Lexis/News, available at, were reviewed to confirm SDC data on the bid, its characteristic, and outcomes.  ...

Security for a High Performance Commodity Storage Subsystem (CMU-CS-99-160)

Howard Gobioff
Based on the performance limitations of software cryptography demonstrated in a prototype implementation of a network attached storage device, I propose and evaluate an alternative to standard message  ...  As storage devices move from behind the protection of a server and become first-class network entities in their own right, they must become actively involved in protecting themselves from network attacks  ...  When an application runs in a server attached system, the fileserver is able to serialize all requests and form a single audit log for multiple storage devices.  ...
